I am a Research Software Engineer, working in Linguistics and Digital Humanities. My ORCiD is 0000-0003-4925-7248.

I currently work as a researcher in the linguistic research project MelaTAMP in the Department of German Studies and Linguistics, at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, where I create software that enables contrastive research on the TAMP (tense, aspect, modality, polarity) systems of seven Oceanic languages.

In the past, I have worked as a researcher in the linguistic research project LinkType (corpus-based typology of clause linkage), where I have developed the architectural prototype of a highly extensible annotation tool for multi-layer linguistic corpora.

As a consultant, I also develop software for research projects such as TraCES (late-antiquity to medieval Ethiopic) and GiesKaNe (basic syntactic structures of New High German).

My primary research interest is the technical sustainability of research software, its measurement and documentation. Further academic interest includes research data management, especially the long-term availability and reusability of linguistic research data.

I support the emerging association of Research Software Engineers in Germany, deRSE.

I live in Berlin, Germany, with my wife and three children.
